I dont know the impacts for all the hazards but here is a quick Californian hazard case study which might help you a bit :) 

on the 17th October 1989 an earthquake 7.1 on the Richter scale, the epicentre being Loma Prieta in the Santa Cruz Mountains, created a death toll of 63, injured 13,757 people and destroyed 1018 houses alongside 366 businesses. The damage cost was $6 billion.
